$199.00 PC

Not the fastest PC on the market, comes with Linux.  Might be a good AROS box when AROS is ready.

Yes it actually does make me think "Black Troll" wonder what they are up to.  We still have about a month to wait to find out, I think.

Honestly?  I wouldn't give $9.00 for a Duron, let alone the other $190.

It looks like a fair deal, but doesn't appear to come with some things like a floppy or CD-ROM drive.  I think for a couple of $$$ more you can get a faster AMD XP with some name brand parts, floppy, CD, etc.
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

well, if all I had was $199, I would go for something like this....however, I am generally tempted to notch it up just a wee bit.  

the athlon xp is a bit long in the tooth, but, its at the sweeet spot for best performance/dollar.  I got caught up in the 'mobile barton' overclocking craze myself...but I saved a bunch of money and have a fairly fast system...spent less than 500 total on my computer.

My dad got one of those to check out for a customer, came with Linare Linux, which is a modded redhat distro. Came with like a 30 gig HDD... geee can't remember if it had CDROM drive... it uses a small mobo though.... like, the case is huge for the size of the mobo.... mini atx or something, longer than it is wide....
